the same to declare a climate emergency. here we are. we don't know why the white house stopped short of making this emergency declaration on climate today with of course president biden standing in front of a once-fired coal powered plant being converted into an offshore wind manufacturing facility. there's speculation a tough time to roll out that announcement amid high gas prices and recession fears and since can it
be used as a legal basis to drop oil and gas drills. congressional republicans say pain at the pump is the point. >> i think the administration does want us to suffer. the secretary of transportation said yesterday you don't like the cost of gasoline, buy an electric vehicle. >> so some announcements did come from the president's remarks plan to propose wind mills in the gulf of mexico and a record of amount of fema funding for infrastructure, neil. >> jackie, thanks for that. let's go to jeff block right now. he's in philadelphia. witnesses this for himself. the stressed utilities and the bills that go with it. jeff? >> 97 degrees here on dillworth plaza. we're 1 of the 100 million in the 95 plus column this morning.
these young folks are getting cool, but their parents are paying through the nose to try to cool their homes. take a look at the numbers right now. cpi in june found electricity cost 13% more than it did in june of last year. natural gas, which fires much of our electricity in the u.s., up 38%. the average bill this summer for electricity they tell us will be about $540. that is $90 more than this time last year. some individual places are even more hard hit. philadelphia, for example, the gas utility here has the ability to charge something that they call a weather normalization fee. if the climate is way off from what was predicted, they could tack on in the case of this one bill, a $36 gas bill because $129. in florida, a $100 electrical
bill last year, $120 this year. you might escape the hot weather by walking through the water, but you may not be able to escape paying more to try to stay cool. >> neil: brilliant. it's like you're walking on the water. like you're mosts in a sear sucker suit. amazing. >> i have done that. >> neil: i bet you have. no one does the walk in walk here jeff flock. smooth as silk. if i did that, it would be like -- anyway. i digress. i want to go to brian brenberg now. one of the professors of professors. i wish i had him in school. he's younger. would have been i'm pocket. the economics professor. brian, we look at prices right now. jeff outlined a lot of those soaring and expecting to continue soaring. did you hear anything out of the president today that gives you a hint that that might stop?
>> absolutely not. he's talking about more wind off the gulf coast and cooling centers and that's going to solve the problem that jeff so rightly pointed out. this is a nonsolution program by the president. more and more it looks like they don't want a solution. pete buttigieg made that clear yesterday. his point is that the worst this gets, the more likely the president's green agenda goes through. they want everybody in electric cars. that means if you have to boil this summer, that's what you have to do. he's standing in front of an empty lot in this speech today, neil. i think most of america wishes the coal plant was still there. then we could bring down the electricity prices and more people could be in a cool environment. be safer. europe is showing us the wrong path. i'm sorry to say, neil, looks like we're following straight down that path right now.
>> neil: ironically, germany is open to the possibility of using more coal to get through this hump and beyond that hump. but it's interesting. it's an issue i brought up with the president of environment, an adviser. we got in to this issue about utilities and how they're powering these cool electric vehicles. up to half of that power comes from coal. i want you to listen to this exchange and give me your thoughts. >> i think that we don't want to see the resurgence of coal because that is the most damaging fossil fuel of ours -- >> neil: look at germany. they're going knee deep into it because they need it. >> i don't want to be repeating the mistakes of other countries to the point that we need to bring back coal. >> neil: why would coal be a mistake especially when you combine it with natural gas. those two energy sources account for more than half of the power plants in this country. get rid of them, you're in a
pickle. >> neil, we can agree that most people don't want to see a resurgence of coal. >> neil: they love their electric vehicles, right? coal is important to that. natural gas is important to that. that's the energy behind those cool vehicles. >> let me give you a minute. i think what we want to see oil and gas grow in the united states, you want to counter the shortages that we've had in those fuels and to make sure that the economy can grow. nobody is disputing that. >> neil: all right. i don't know, brian, if there's a push on the part of people across the country saying no coal, no coal. they're looking at their bills and saying no more, no more. that is the loggerheads we're at. >> people want energy. this country runs on cheap abundantly increasingly clean energy. they look at comments like that and say you don't want to make the mistakes that europe has made in this president is making every single mistake that europe
made. going to pariah states, going to dictators around the world and asking them for energy. now in this country, states telling their citizens, you have to conserve, cut back. we might not power your homes. we're already making the mistake. the question is are we going to turn around. frankly i think most americans would say if we're going to use coal from the u.s. to power plants to make sure that we can continue to power this economy, let's do it and let's do it with natural gas and nuclear. in time that means more green, neil. it's all of the above. you're not going to get to green if you undercut prosperity. that's the problem with this administration. their about wind and solar. that will lead us to impoverishment, not more innovation. >> neil: yeah, it's all in on everything. have at it. go all in. don't pick and choose particularly now to your point. professor, thanks very much.
brian brenberg following those developments. hillary vaughn on capitol hill with other ways to deal with the inflation problem. not all of it very popular or for that matter practical. hillary, what do you have? >> neil, deficit hawks are sounding the alarm over rising u.s. debt, especially as interest rates rise that makes paying off the debt even more expensive. senator manchin dashing progressives dreams of billions of new spending with inflation so high, even though manchin has become the target of attacks from his own colleagues that think that climate crisis is bigger than inflation. tim ryan says manchin has a point. >> just because i'm a democrat doesn't mean -- we have to plans the budget. we have a trillion dollar a year deficits. even though they're coming down, these are long-term problems that again, just like the environment, we have a steward
the environment for the next generation. we can't put it on the credit card and give it to the next generation. interest rates are going up. >> the president deciding to take executive action on what he can, but it's congress that has the power of the purse. so some progressives say what biden is doing on his own is not enough. >> it's unfortunate that one man can kill legislation that will save our planet. we think it's important for the president now to take executive action. that's not enough. we can't lead the world when we have one person on our side that is killing all of that legislation. >> even though manchin had major concerns over new spending, the original plan for the skinny version of build back better was to have half of the revenue raised from tax hikes to go to paying off the debt. commit that the committee for a responsible federal budget said wasn't a bad idea. the president saying this.
"lawmakers should not abandon the $1 trillion of offsets and $500 billion in deficit reduction from the previous frame work and enacting deficit redukes could help check debt and inflation, which is the most important thing congress can do to reduce the risks of recession. so neil, just because new spending is off the table, some definite it is hawks are saying let's not forget that deficit reduction should still be on the table. neil? >> neil: got it. big news out of the european continent had nothing to do with weather but having to do with conserving energy. particularly natural gas. they're urging all european union countries to cut back consumption by 15%, this is natural gas. got us thinking of just gas, period. like fuel for your cars during the opec embargoes and the gas cries of the 70s. remember odd and even days? why what is happening in europe
the bull is back. far from that. it's a wild ride. while we focus on the dow, it's up 48 points. more remarksable, what is happening on the tech rich nasdaq. up 1.5%. if you're counting from the lows, it's up 11% from the lows. a lot of the individual stocks that comprise that average are still in bear market territory. some not much better than a correction. the one big development certainly had to be tesla. after the bell, it reported some earnings and revenue numbers that beat the street. the stock is up and after hours trading, but the reality is right now that it dead experience their first sequential decline in quarterly profit in more than a year. a lot of this was telegraphed because they had problems in shanghai where they were unable to manufacture cars and china manufacturing in general was slowed. so some of this was anticipated.
the stock is up on all of this, but a little bit. about 2.5%. susan li is following these developments and has more. >> a lot of negative and positive. wall street wants the positive. you're up 4%. we saw the first quarter on quarter decline in a year. you have profit missing slightly. actually, profit came in better. sales missed slightly. gross margins. why do we care about automotive margins? tells how high the costs are, especially for tesla and elon musk trying to bring in the giga berlin. and he's spending billions right now not producing enough cars and it's not ramping fast enough to get the supply on the market. we saw the closure in shanghai which hurt production. they produced 600,000 cars in the first half of the year. we're still waiting for the earnings call to start at 5:30.
will elon musk be on it? he said he won't be on every quarter. he will be asked about twitter as well. 600,000 cars in the first half of the year and tesla is still gunning for 1.45 million vehicles to be made this year. they have to have a stellar back half of this year, the last six months, in other words to get to that guidance. >> neil: great overview, susan. it's been a rough week for the world's richest man. think about it. you know, the twitter battle not withstanding and a delaware court judge saying we're going to have this court case litigated in october. we're going to speed it, which is what twitter wanted. and then these troubles with foreign and asian production. it's been rough. >> they're's the thing also that we're talking about tesla, the fact that he has to sell around $10 billion. $4 billion more this year in
order to raise the cash, the $44 billion twitter bid. he did lose the first round in the twitter trial in the delaware court. it will be a five-day trial in of course. some say look, if he gets to walk away from buying twitter, he has to pay a few billion in damages, maybe the $1 billion breakup fee that is a plus for him. he will have extra cash with the selling of $10 billion of tesla stock last year just in case for the $44 billion deal. there's been an overhang on the stock, neil, about $100 billion or so to roughly around $100 per share because of the unknowns of this twitter deal. eventually he will have to sell more tesla stock to raise more cash for more loans in order to complete the purchase. >> i've always wondered whether that was the reason, the collapse in that stock. a lot of other technology stocks, the currency for his deal might have had some role in
him walking back. we'll never know. >> you know, tesla stock is down 30% this year. if we see the first -- we might see the first stock decline in tesla since 2016. some say if he didn't launch this twitter bid, we wouldn't be here. you never know. >> neil: never know. he could say, well, look what is happening to the other technology companies. wild stuff. great reporting, susan li. if you don't get fox business, you should get it. it comes in handy, especially on days like this. all right. comes in handy to hear from the house majority leader what he makes of what the president wants to do right now to take some climate action. some say the timing is interesting, but his proposal is not. steny hoyer after this.
thanks for coming. now when it comes to a financial plan this broker is your man. let's open your binders to page 188... uh carl, are there different planning options in here? options? plans we can build on our own, or with help from a financial consultant? like schwab does. uhhh... could we adjust our plan... ...yeah, like if we buy a new house? mmmm... and our son just started working. oh! do you offer a complimentary retirement plan for him? as in free? just like schwab. schwab! look forward to planning with schwab.
plus, patients get 20% off their treatment plan. we're on your corner and in your corner every step of the way. because your anything is our everything. aspen dental. anything to make you smile. book today at aspendental.com, walk in, or call 1-800-aspendental. >> neil: seems like prices are going up everywhere. how would you like to pay a
nickel for a hot dog. it's national hot dog day. the beauty is in the bun. i'll explain after this. each with a time and a place they've been promised to be. and the people of old dominion never turn away a promise. or over promise. or make an empty promise. we keep them. a promise is everything to old dominion, because it means everything to you. like any family, the auburns all have... individual priorities. some like strategic diversification. some like a little comfort, to balance out the risk. others want immediate gratification... and long-term gratification,too. they have their own interests, but at the end of the day there's nothing like being...
a gold-owner. visit invest.gold to see why gold is everyone's asset. >> neil: possible solutions for climate action as the president would like to put it today in a speech in massachusetts? what had been a coal plant that will now be used to build wind mills. we have us steny hoyer here. across process in maryland there and the gubernatorial battle. congratulations. good to have you. >> good to be with you. i'm looking forward to 5 cent hot dogs. >> neil: me, too. could i get your take on what is president offered today? i know he was looking longer term with wind and solar and all
of that. a lot of people are just perplexed looking at their bills and saying what are you doing to bricks down what i'm paying with a utility bill right now? a lot of the stuff addresses doesn't address that. >> what the president has been recommending all along in the legislation, some of which we passed like the rescue plan at the infrastructure bill, is a long-term address to alternative energy sources and renewable energy sources. >> neil: do we have time for that right now? long-term maybe. right now it's an immediate threat and he's talking about this wind stuff and people around him are saying coal is so passe. coal powers a quarter of the utility plants responsible for powering the fancy electric vehicles. i wonder if that's a big disconnect. >> i don't think so.
i think we have an emergency. the president didn't call an emergency today but we look at what is happening with weather around the world, not here only, where the west is burning up and literally and figuratively burning up. then we see europe having the same problem. >> neil: even germany is looking at more coal to offset what is happening now. we're doing the opposite. they're expanding natural gas. we're doing the opposite. in the flex for clean air, however you want to put it, are we ignoring the immediate threat and the horror for a lot of americans that are overwhelmed? >> first of all, i don't believe you're entirely accurate when we're seeing we're reversing our use of natural gas. we're not. we're expanding that. what we're saying -- >> neil: the president's environmental guy was saying that natural gas, coal, they're
passe and particularly coal. i'm wondering, it is an important part of utilities powering up the electric vehicles vision for the future. >> neil, i hear what you're saying. we can't look just short term. in short term we're using fossil fuels and coal and natural gas. i'm a big nuclear proponent, which was not popular 10, 15 years from now. everybody says if you want to get to 2050 goals of carbon reduction, you have to use nuclear power. you talked about germany. why is germany turning in the very short term hopefully using more coal, which is very damaging to the environment, very damaging to global warming. but in light of russia's war and their decision not to use energy from russia, they need
alternative sources. >> neil: i don't want to badger the point, but coal is cleaner than it used to be and natural gas is pristine as almost any energy source could be. i understand what you're saying, but the fire is right now. the out of control is right now. >> my point, neil, is we're using the fuels you talked about right now. it's not as if this has been cut off because it hasn't been cut off. mr. scalise tries to make that message and i point out to him, we have more drilling today than we had under trump of fossil fuels. >> neil: more drilling collectively over four years, almost two of which were hit by covid. that's not an accurate comparison. >> we still have -- it's not
2022 or 2021. i agree with that. but we still have covid with us. we have gotten the economy back. we've grown jobs. we have more demand. >> neil: we don't have the economy quite back. we're having some serious problems. i guess what i'm asking, sir, is there a sense that from what the president proposed today, that that will be enough to address the real problems that we have nowed and the environmental stuff? i'm hearing doubts from a lot of folks that fear the president is overwhelmed, that democrats have no answer. what do you say? >> i think that's baloney, that we don't have any answers. we have responsible answers. there's responsible use of existing fuels to power our economy. you say the economy is not doing too well. 8.9 million jobs in 15 or 16 months. that's more jobs as any time in history. >> neil: no doubt. but we're looking at two back-to-back quarters that will be contracting and will be the definition of a recession. you're right. we're in a stronger possession
than we were during the last one. but is there a real concern here that its slipping away? the president's approval rating is at an all-time low. the democrats are at an all-time low. are you worried about that backdrop? >> neil, inflation is a huge problem for americans. supply shortages particularly in grocery stores is a huge problems for americans. we need to deal with that. we passed the food and fuel bill not long ago. we passed the ocean shipping bill, which has to do with prices and supply lines. we passed the competes bill. we are now going to get something on the chips down very soon. all of that deals with inflation and deals with trying to get this economy to a place where we're not having withdrawal. again, we're 3.6 unemployment. if this were a republican president, i think people would be saying boy, 3.6 unemployment,
that is just about nonemployment.
>> neil: until they go to the grocery store, right? >> until you go the grocery store. >> neil: the backdrop for this is the president. could i ask you this? do you think as some in your party are saying, he should run again, he's open to run again. he's not too old to run. >> neil, i'm not going to go there. this is about today. you're asking about problems today. there's an inflation problem. what you haven't said -- >> neil: six out of ten democrats think the president is up to dealing with this today, right? >> neil, are you going to let me speak. >> neil: please, go ahead. >> thank you. neil, what you haven't said is in terms of inflation, this is a worldwide problem. we're in the middle of the oecd nations in terms of inflation. about 50% higher than ours, 50% lower. we're in the middle. it's worldwide. what caused it? the pandemic caused it.
the supply shortages and the spike in demand. as you point out -- >> neil: the administration didn't cause this? >> if spending caused it, why are 50% of the nations in the oecd nation as above us, they didn't do an american rescue plan. did spending -- yes, i think it did in this sense. during the pandemic, people were shut in their homes, they weren't consuming. suppliers were cutting inventory because people weren't buying. >> neil: you think we're through the worst of it? >> i certainly hope so. what points that out is people are coming out and consuming. they're buying. what happens? the suppliers were down. what happens when supplies are down and demand is up? you spike costs. that's a problem. we ought to empathize with that i mentioned a number of bills including the build back better bill, which drives to bring down prescription drugs costs and the
affordable care act costs. so yes, we think that is important. the president thinks it's important. we're acting on it. it's not an overnight situation. it's a critical problem for the american consumer and the american people. >> neil: so you don't share the concerns a six out of ten democrats have about the president or his age? >> that's not what i'm here to talk about. i will tell you this: in my view, the president is acting responsibly, effectively on behalf of the american people and on behalf of our economy and that's why we have 8.9 million new jobs and 3.6 under employment and that's why we're doing well, but in doing well, it has increased demand and supply is not caught up yet. >> neil: we'll watch it closely. steny hoyer, thank you. >> thank you. >> neil: the house majority leader. steny hoyer. we talk about europe and the fear that they're asking a lot of europeans, you have to start
conserving around here. maybe about 15% or so, cut back on your natural gas. got us worrying about when this country was doing something with real gas, the stuff that you power your cars with. that was then. this is now. what happens after this. ne easy. ♪ pop rock music ♪ >> tech: ...we can replace your windshield and recalibrate your advanced safety system. >> dad: looks great. thanks. >> tech: stay safe with safelite. schedule now. >> singers: ♪ safelite repair, safelite replace. ♪ [acoustic soul music throughout] [acoustic soul music throughout] [acoustic soul music throughout] oh, hey. buying a car from vroom is so easy, all you need is a phone and a finger. just go to vroom.com, scroll through thousands of cars. then, tap to buy. that's it. no sales speak. no wasted time. just, straight up great cars.

15%? >> we heard this statement from brussels a couple hours ago. it's significant and a serious matter. we have not received any recent documentation, any written proposal yet. i think it's too serious. the issue is too serious to make a comment after a statement on this. so we're looking forward to receive a written proposal by the commission and then formulate our position. but that's just a statement. it would be unserious to comment on that. >> minister, in getting some remarks coming from your prime minister, there seems to be in your country and correct me if i'm wrong maybe inpatience with the ukrainian war and some of the financial sacrifices all members have made in that regard. is that true? >> look, we're a neighboring
country. every minute spent with war in ukraine puts a security risk on our country. security risk when it comes to physical security andeconomics security as well and not to speak about the safe supply of energy. so we hungarians as a neighboring country, we're super interested in peace. peace as soon as possible. we think that international community must concentration on establishing an immediate cease fire and to start peace talks as soon as possible. peace is the only solution for all of those very severe challenges and problems which are ahead of us in europe. the very high inflation rate, the sky high energy prices, the very high commodity prices. the possible new wave of illegal
migration because of food insecurity. these are all tragic consequences of the war. in order to mitigate these tragic consequences, we hungarians are advocating for peace and we ask european union, the european commission, brussels and the entire international community to do it best, to do everything in order to come to peace in ukraine. >> neil: seems a long way off, minister. i get the sense especially with the ukrainian president's wife here in the united states making her pitch on behalf of her country for more aid and help and patience out of the united states, it sounds like maybe your country and other members are maybe beginning to run out of patience. how would you describe it? >> look, we hungarians have been carrying out the hardest humanitarian aid action of the
history of our country. we have received 840,000 refugees so far. take good care of them. we supply them, we assist them in all of their needs. we offer jobs for those that stay longer. we enroll all of the kids in to the schools and in to kindergarten. 900 hungarian education institutions have been part of this program. we offer 1,000 scholarships for ukrainian youngsters that cannot start their university studies and secondary education. we do our best in order to help. the figures are growing, so there's 13,000 to 15,16,000 arrivals on a daily basis from ukraine when it comes to the refugees. i have to tell you that we're under double pressure now.
we have the refugees coming from the east, but we're faced with a really strong and growing pressure of illegal migration from the south. illegal migration will grow in case there's no solution for the grain export from the ukraine. >> neil: i can hear you. there was a move on the part of russia to annex these territories that they want in ukraine. that does seem to be some a signal that one way for this war to end is to let russia keep what it has annexed or won. the ukrainians say no. nine out of ten ukrainians say they shouldn't get an inch of land. that is one possibility. how do you feel about that? what is hungary's position on whether yoon should let russia keep some of the land if not all
of the land they have won? >> look, we're a country that protects territorial integrity an sovereignty. that must be respect. that must not be challenged for sure. >> neil: so nothing. if that's the offer that russia puts on the table, not that they have, but if that's the offer put on the table, no, you would not accepted it. you don't think other nato members would accent it and ukraine clearly won't accept it? >> look, we're not a party to the conflict. we're doing our best to not be involved in this war. it's not easy. i have to tell you. >> neil: what you said, sir, there means that this drags on quite a kyle. could go on for months and even years. >> you mean the war? >> neil: the war. >> yeah, unfortunately we don't see the end. no one can forecast the end. we all hope, members of my
generation, we hope for a life where we do not have to experience war in such a close -- we have lost this hope. this hope became a dream. rather to say an illusion. we in europe, we thought the 21st century would go this way and not have to be faced with war and armed conflicts. but why lost this hope of ours. now it seems that this war would last long. that's why i think it's very obvious that the sooner it comes to an end, the less sacrifice ukrainians have to make. there's people, hundreds or more hundreds of people dying daily. and we see heart breaking to see those families that arrive to hungary. they have to leave their fathers back at home because of the conscript rules. these families arrive without
any opportunity whether they will be reunited again during their life. so please understand that seeing the consequences of the war from the neighborhood from so close, the only solution, what we have to advocate for is immediate cease fire and peace talks and peace as soon as possible. the less suffering from people in ukraine. >> thanks, sir. thanks to what hungary has done to deal with the refugee crisis there. welcoming 800,000 ukrainians in his country. he like others are saying, we're with you, but again, this is going on and on and on. we'll keep track of that. also keeping track closer to home about crime. it's gotten more brazen, of course, in this country. but what we've been seeing in new york, a new york police officer on horseback dealing back an alleged sun glass thief
in times square. no venue is without some risk. let's go to lydia hu with more. lydia? >> hi, neil. that video that you just saw is incredible. it was captured on body cam footage from over the weekend on saturday. police say that they -- there's a man accused of stealing -- robbing a vendor in times square of sunglasses and threatening him with a broken piece of glass. that's when a police officer riding a horse approached him, told him to stop after the man paused and took a look at the horse. he took off on foot. the horse hot on his trail galloping after him through new york city streets. the man was caught by cops on foot and he faces robbery and weapons charges. what this horse happened to pull
off over the weekend, some say is just not enough nearly enough. that criticism coming from some grocery store operators that say grocery stores are more and more the target of brazen thefts by organized crime rings that are stealing meats and ice creams, the high ticket items and reselling them on the black market. crime across the city has also risen. you can see here that petite larceny, theft under $1,000 is up 42% this year. store operators, they blame soft on crime policies that fail to prosecute misdemeanor thefts. >> i feel bad for the police. they still come to the store, but then they have to release. i really think they're doing their job, but if you don't stop it and put somebody in the jail
or hold them up for a few days, it's going to continue. >> the store we're in has hired six police officers to increase security. another store, morton williams has doubled staff. the owners tell me that that has added a million dollars in security costs this year alone. it's a very expensive problem to tackle. >> neil: thanks, lydia. the implications of that, how brazen all of this is getting with the top detective that knows a thing or two about what is at stakes, ted williams, is next. ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪ "shake your thang" by salt n pepa
